Keep holding out hope we’ll get Ali Travis Bean copies but every month that I go look it’s never a thing.

Though I have seen Dan Armstrong Lucite copies and would probably be into owning one. An aluminum neck is probably just too expensive to make it worth buying one let alone any of those manufacturers trying to build them.

Well, this is what the front of the neck should look like. I know there's a chance that this might be an internet picture, but i have a feeling this one is a real fake. :P

I asked to switch the "F" for an "L" using the same
font.

The inner curve before the ball is too large and the transition before the straight line at the top of the headstock is too steep compared to an original Fender counterpart.
It's indeed a REAL FAKE :D

Looking forward to see a full review of the guitar when it arrives!!!! :w00t:

I like the real genuine fake stuff lol

Totally off topic but I found an adidas trainer in a dodgy shop downtown that I knew was a fake... so I went on to look for the original model so I could buy. Turns out the fake was a new creation LMAO so I had no choice but to buy the damn thing.

Well, at least they're doing Fender fakes with the truss rod at the heel now.

Not having to take the neck off to adjust the truss rod is actually a change I welcome on guitars - when the aesthetics are done right, at least.
